Church Street Elementary School Home
Students will be learning online starting the week of March 30. Their online classrooms will be in the Google Classroom platform. Students will need access to a computer (desktop or laptop), iPad or chromebook with Internet access in order to complete their work.
Church Street families who need a device for their children to connect to Google Classroom can pick up a chromebook to borrow. They will be available for curbside pick up at school on Monday, March 30, according to the following schedule:
- 9:00-11:00 Last names A–M
- 11:00-1:00 Last names N–Z
Parents or guardians must pick up the chromebook. Please drive up (strongly encouraged) or walk up to school during the time frame you are assigned. Please note that there is no access to the buildings by parents or students at any time.
Teachers are aware that our schedule will mean that not all students will connect on Monday - and so they will be flexible for the first week as we all get connected and adjust to learning online.
If you are having any login or technical problems, contact Karen Kraemer by email for help! firstname.lastname@example.org

As you know, all Hamden Public Schools are closed due to the Coronavirus. Although essential staff may be in our buildings, our schools and central office are currently closed to the public.
Related to school meals, breakfast and lunch are available Monday - Friday, from 9:00-12:00 each morning at Hamden High, Hamden Middle and Church Street Schools. Any child 18 years and younger is eligible for these meals, which can be picked up by students or parents/guardians.
We have created a page to provide Hamden Public Schools updates during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please regularly check www.Hamden.org/Coronavirus for current information affecting the Hamden Public Schools community.
The next Hamden School-Based Farmer’s Market will be open on Monday, FEBRUARY 24. CT Food Bank, Hamden Public Schools and the Family Resource Center are working together to distribute assorted foods to ALL HPS students and families. Please bring reusable bags with you.
Even though the Farmer's Market will be at Dunbar Hill School (315 Lane Street in Hamden), the food is available for all Hamden families. The mobile food truck will be in the back parking lot filled with assorted healthy foods for all of Hamden Public School students and their families. The food will be distributed for one hour, from 3:30pm-4:30pm. No I.D. is needed, and all food is free, participants will just need to bring a bag, line up, and receive their produce. Please see the flyer with all the dates. (English/Spanish)
Anyone who wishes to volunteer can contact Hector Velazquez, 203-407-2020 ext. 9.
Chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese... how does that sound? Starting April 1, Hamden is pleased to add heat-at-home foods to our take-away meal program. Our breakfast and lunch program will include new fully-cooked food options that can be heated at home. Sandwiches are yummy - but variety is the spice of life!
Fresh fruit and veggies are also included in the food options available.
The take-away meals are available at our five food distribution locations: Church Street School, Ridge Hill School, Hamden Middle School, Hamden High School, and the Keefe Center. Meals are available Monday-Friday, from 9:00-12:00 for any child 18 years of age or younger.
Here's a copy of the upcoming menu. Help us spread the word - we want to keep our kids happy and healthy!
It looks like schools will be closed for awhile, and we are busy planning for students to learn from home electronically. In order to implement at-home online learning, we need to know what technology and Internet connectivity is available to your child(ren) at home.
We have created a survey to help determine access and needs. The survey is available in print form at our food distribution sites (Church Street, Hamden High and Hamden Middle Schools) and can be completed electronically: Technology Survey - English and Technology Survey - Spanish. Please complete the survey by Monday, March 23.
